Question about Intel D915PCY Motherboard

1 Answer

Motherboard worked, but not on first try.

Hello,

You were helping me with my computer not powering up, except when I removed the network card. You suggested the pci controller was bad, and I should change the motherboard. I finally obtained a new motherboard and it seems to have corrected the problem. The only curious thing is that when I first plugged in the computer, it did the same thing...it wouldn't power up until I pushed the power button a bunch of times....but once it started and I shut it down, it starts on the first push of the power button every time. Any thoughts on why it wouldn't work the first time?

Its proberally because your card got a static charge,, This needed to be discharged , it happend when you pushed the button several times therefore dumping the eletricity.. Since it was dumped it started to work as normal without fault :) cheers..

Motherboard Power Problem


Hello Alienware,

Could be a few things.... such as the micro-fuses that have gone on the MB....

But what I dont understand is this:...."Then I disconnect the 4-pin cable that goes from the Power Supply to the motherboard near the CPU and the pc turns on fine"

How????
You have just disconnected the cable from the PSU to the motherboard....it CANT turn on! LOL.

Do you mean that the lights turn on?
Or you hear the HD spin up (if you left it connected to the MB that is)?

Please advise so I can help you more.

Computer won't power on right away


Wll it could be your pci controller is damaged.. (In thic case the only solution is to buy a new board)

Or you bios might need flashing..

Unplug your system
Open up the system,
put back in your network card
remove the battery on the main board
hit the power button 7 times
replace the battery
plug it back in and try to boot now

When it boots, you need to enter the setup and load your default settings then save and exit..

Hello sir, I m facing a great problem with my computer. whenever I power on my computer power light remains on and all other process goes on except the hard disk light. it does not blink even it does not...


The problem is most likely with the Graphics card port on your motherboard. You will need to run the computer without a graphics card or buy a new motherboard, sorry!

The yellow light comes on inside but the computer won't come on neither does it beep?


First remove any power cables and batteries(if laptop) from your system and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.

Plug the power cable back in & attempt to boot.
If this does not solve your problem then you will need to remove all non-essentials from your system.

If laptop, this simply consist of battery, ram, optical drive & any other removable bays or devices. Unplug all cables except the power cable & attempt to boot.

If desktop, you will need to remove any cables plugged into your computer except keyboard, mouse, power, video, sound, & network cable. Open the case & remove any PCI cards, except video cards, unless you have on-board video, unplug the data & power cables going to the optical & hard drives. Now attempt to boot. If you have no luck you can remove your RAM sticks & try again. If you get an error beep warning you about no ram then you might have a bad ram stick. If none of the above works then you may have a bad power supply or motherboard. Power supplies are pretty easy to test with tester or use a spare.

No network adapter found


Hello, this seems like a hardare conflict between the new video card and the ethernet port. try checking in the device manager for conflicts like yellow esclamation marks.

you can get there by going to start /control panel /system icon / devices / device manager

No display on GA 81G1000 mk motherboard


Some history would be appreciated.
Has this computer ever worked?
Have you recently added new hardware or software?
Has anything happened recently that may have caused this (lightning storm, etc.)?

If the computer was working fine and for no apparent reason now won't POST, first remove everything from the outside (keyboard, mouse, etc.) except monitor. If that works, one of the items you removed is causing a problem.

If not, unplug power, open case, remove all expansion cards except for video, then try again. If you have never worked inside a computer, some help from a knowledgeable friend would be advised. Be sure to touch the metal case before touching any circuit board inside the computer.
Also disconnect the cabling from all of the drives and then retry boot.

Let me know if this helps. If not, we can do more providing you are comfortable working inside the computer at my direction.

Computer won't power on at all when network card is plugged into motherboard


Based on what you said, network card is not the main problem it is on the expansion slot where you had put the network card. My advice is that you should try putting your network card on other expansion slot or try another card (which is working) and put in on the slot to where you previously put your network card and if it doesn't work, that slot may have been damaged or it may have dirt inside.

Problems with intel D850GB motherboard


There's nothing obvious here, so you need to start with the basics.
Look in Control Panel/Admin Tools/System and Application to see if any errors suggest a fix.
Be sure the old (New) graphics driver was removed.
Clean out any dust.
Remove all components and replace them one at a time carefully making sure you get a good connection each time.
Power up the board as you replace each item to see if you can isolate the error.
